Pizzey Ingredients (formerly J.G. Pizzey Inc.), Russell, Manitoba, received the Editor’s Choice Award for Best Gluten-Free Ingredient at Engredea 2015, held March 4-8 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. The company also received a nomination for a NEXTY Award. NEXTY nominations are selected for products and brands New Hope Natural Media and its consulting firm predict will shape the future of the natural products industry.

Pizzey Ingredients was chosen for both honors by New Hope’s editorial staff after walking the Engredea and Natural Products Expo West show floors and interviewing booth personnel.

“I am very pleased that flaxseed has been recognized as a superior, nutritious alternative to other fillers that are often found in gluten-free products” says Linda Pizzey, president of the company. “Because of Pizzey Ingredient’s rigorous standards and dedication to excluding gluten from our farm and processing facility, we can guarantee that our flaxseed is truly gluten-free ‘from the ground up.’”
